There are many reasons to watch this trailer for Dom Hemingway, the new British dark comedy starring Jude Law and Richard E. Grant.
One might be that Jude is rocking the kind of whiskers that, in less enlightened times, would have been mockingly referred to as buggers grips (it’s an unspeakable story, don’t ask us to explain). Another might be Richard’s rock star shades and general wastrel demeanor. Or indeed the fact that Jude strips off at one point and goes for a walk in a spinney.
But actually, the real reason is that it’s a very funny trailer for what looks like a pretty funny film. And as it shares producers with the astonishing Sexy Beast (which, if you haven’t seen it, you most definitely should), it has to be worth a go.
Dom Hemingway hits British theaters on November 15 (and other distribution networks afterwards).
